I considered that when I was writing this, but the Breastplate article was clearly & specifically about riding tack, and covers a clearly different piece of tack, used for a different purpose. So I kept it a separate article. I supposed a link between them would be appropriate. T-bonham (talk) 23:31, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Maybe this article should be named Breastplate (harness), with reciprocal links to Breastplate (tack). How is the piece different when used in harness rather than riding? If there is no real difference, then Breastplate (tack) merely reflects the POV (point of view) of the editors who have contributed to that article so far, and you can improve it by adding a different POV.
Does anyone call the harness piece a "breastplate" or "breastcollar"? --Una Smith (talk) 01:20, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
I have no objection to the merge, but also don't have strong feelings in either direction. This catalogue uses the term "breastcollar," but I'd surf 6-8 ctalogue sites to see if the terminology is consistent. Montanabw(talk) 03:52, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
